Here are a few of my favorite bags.... I have to admit the cow fabric was purely for me - I couldn't resist. The other fabrics were: sports balls, rainforest lizards, classic planes, country bears. I think they came out pretty good, even Mason was surprise at how much better they were from my last attempt.
The whole experiment wasn't completely perfect. I hadn't counted on the fact that it is very hard for a brand new 5 year old to untie fancy bows... plus after he opened his traditional gifts from grandparents (wrapped in paper) I noticed it was kind of weird not hearing the rip shred and tear while Braden open the gifts.
